The Federal Communications Commission has posted a summary report on 
outage reports due to the winter storm impacting Texas and central US.

It looks incomplete to me compared to the detail collected during a 
typical hurricane. It is based on reports from telecommunication 
companies.  If companies don't self-report, the FCC doesn't know.

Through February 18, 2021

8 Oklahoma outage reports
208 Texas outage reports

Caida and Netblocks data shows more outages in the central United States 
(Texas), but I don't know how accurate their sub-county measurements are.


According to news reports FEMA brought in 60 generators and diesel 
fuel into Texas, but local authorities haven't dispatched orders for 
their deployment yet.
